I scored over 16 but I didn't need to take a quiz to tell me I'm older than dirt! My 17 year old daughter and 16 year old son tell me that all the time. They just wish they were making the money I do!

All but 1&11 and I suspect that they are regional things. In the late 40's & 50's we had to count the #of rings. How old are you?

I got a perfect score, I'm older than dirt. I can top some of these questions. I've mowed with horses, raked hay, planted corn and cultivated with horses. Listened to the Lone Ranger and Our Miss Brookes on radio. We had a Studebaker and before that a Model A Ford. I'm older than water too. :)<p>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;;&gt;Eric@ELM&lt;/a&gt;<br>

My kids don't know how I could grow up without an answering machine, vcr, or computer.

Well, 20 out of 25, a couple more actually but considering I'm from Arkansas where its always 20 years behind the times. <br>And we can still get the coke bottles full of suger water!!!!<br>And I used to deliver film to a Drive In, It closed about 10 years ago but there is still one 30 miles south of here!!!! So I guess I'm older then dirt but today is still my birthday!
